Subject: An Ultimate For The Sci-Fi Lover!
Great adaptations of Sci-Fi classics and stories! If you are a fan of the likes of Dimension X, X Minus 1, SF 68 and other Sci-Fi Old Time Radio shows, this one's for you!

Subject: Great collection.
I love Minds Webs and wish it was still being produced.
Reviewer: daRktoweR - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - June 24, 2015
Subject: Thought provoking and superb
Essential listening for the Science Fiction enthusiast. Better than average sound quality, when one has listened to other items on the site.
Totally recommended and many thanks to the site contributor. *****

Subject: One of the Best Series
*** UPDATE ****

A newer, higher-quality, version of this series has been posted by Darkman with 153 episodes!


Michael Hanson has a wonderful voice and he does a superb job reading these stories. This series provides a minimalist approach with often just Mr. Hanson, and occasionally a few other actors, reading the script. Rather than rely on sound effects, most episodes use music and character voices to shape the mood.

A wide range of sound quality with some of the best episodes, unfortunately, the hardest to understand (e.g., "When It Changed", "The Night He Cried", and "Foghorn").

Several of the titles/authors listed below are inaccurate or incomplete. You can see a complete listing, along with plot summaries and reviews at:

Subject: Fantastic Show
Sci Fi and radio were made for each other, and Mindwebs proves it beyond. I am so glad I found this.
Reviewer: smeiz99 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - June 2, 2014
Subject: Great series
This collection is one of the best on this site. As an X-1 fan since the 80's I was excited to hear there was a similar style here. I am only 1/2 way through the whole series and wish I would never run out of them. Great job!!
Reviewer: Qool - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - March 11, 2013
Subject: MindWebs
This is the best sci-fi ever from the Archive.

It may be classified as old time radio, yet much of it has a timeless quality, as if it shall never go out of style.
Reviewer: Ruddy2 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - February 25, 2013
Subject: Mindwebs Double links
I agree with most of the previous reviewers here,and thanks for the author listings too!!
Not sure why,there are 2 different pages of this this one being more complete,but not having the origin of the radio station in WI where broadcasted(syndicated?)bio listed,as the lesser episodes page does...!?
Reminds me of stations that created shows like WXYZ,Detroit's "The Lone Ranger" & "The Green Hornet" and "CBS Mystery Theater" and the later(circa 2002)"Twilight Zone Radio"(Falcon Pictures/Radio Spirits productions)
Reviewer: tay13179 - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - March 21, 2011
Subject: The Best!
This is the best sci-fi series here in the Archive by far.
Some of my favorites are Kaleidoscope, Beyond the Wall of Sleep, They, and The Devil Car to name a few.
Reviewer: LibrivoxOrgFan - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - March 21, 2011
Subject: OTR scifi for adults by real writers
There really isnt much adult oriented scifi in otr. While most shows seem to have relied on terrible house writers, this showcases real authors and real stories from the 50s to 70s- and what a great narrator. interesting music no annoying sound effects no commercials excellent sound quality.

Subject: Fantastic science fiction
This should really be filed under Old Time Radio, but be that as it may, this is a really terrific series of dramatic readings of classic science fiction stories, accompanied with weird space music.
